Golden treasures I contain,
Guarded by hundreds and thousands.
Stored in a labyrinth where no man walks,
Yet men come often to seize my gold.
By smoke I am overcome and robbed,
Then left to build my treasure anew.

What am I?




What Next?

I thought it would be coal. Because by golden treasure, I thought it would precious like gold. Guarded by hundreds and thousands would be the rocks that surround it. Stored in a labryinth where no man walks could be because of how deep within the place it is contained. By smoke I am overcome and robbed would be the fireworks and the TNT that they use to blow up the entrance. And then left to build my treasure anew would be after a hundred or thousands of years the coal could renew itself.

I thought it would have been a pyramid too but when it got to the part about smoke and rebuilding treasures I got confused. Excelent riddle though.

I thought it was computer related... golden treasures were electrons storing data, guarded by hundreds and thousands were the binary 1s and 0s of the encryption... No man walked there, duh, it's all virtual... I had no rationalization for the smoke. You got me... good one.

The smoke was a dead giveaway. Beekeepers use smoke to dull the bees senses while they collect the honeycomb
Great Teaser! and Yay! I got this one, and right off too

I thought the answer was slot machine -Guarded by the cameras and pit bosses in a smoke filled casino, when it pays out, it starts collecting coins again. Good teaser. Fun

Didn't get the option for a hint, but I doubt I would have got it. I'm not the brightest of the bunch

This one is soooooo old... but still good.
timilee*us*
Apr 21, 2005

Yea, filetmerlot
that was the first thing i thought of, also.
Then i remembered watching (from many yards away) an old farmer that was a friend of the family using smoke to drive the bees away long enough for him to pull the combs out to retrieve that sweet golden goop.

I enjoyed this one even though I got it wrong. All I could think of was Fort Knox, and I knew it was wrong, but I couldn't see past that. This one was a forehead slapper. Very good ! Thanks !
